She emailed me with a non-paleo recipe of energy bites that were combined using oats and asked if I could come up with something! I love her. Well, oats make poop float in your bloodstream, and I personally don’t want that, so I came up with my own little version of energy bites. And they taste like heaven. Laura said she liked them because they weren’t overly sweet. I personally don’t think there is such thing as “overly sweet” but you get my flow.[/fusion_person]

  • 2 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • ¼ cup goji berries
  • Juice of one whole orange
  • Zest of one whole orange (make sure that it is washed really well or organic)
  • 1 cup raw almond flour (homemade)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup almonds roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. Macadamia nuts
  • ¼ cup coconut nectar or maple syrup or yacon syrup or raw honey (if not vegan)

  • ½ cup pitted medjool dates – chopped
  • Pinch Himalayan sea salt

Method:
  1. Mix the chia seeds and goji berries with the orange juice and zest and set aside to make the gel. Add the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl (except for the desiccated coconut for rolling the balls in) and mix thoroughly.
  2. Add the chia seed & goji berry mixture and mix again. It is best to use your hands so don’t be afraid to get them dirty!
  3. Roll the mixture into ball shapes and then cover them in desiccated coconut.
  4. You can set them in the freezer before serving for about 1 hour.
  5. Alternatively you can dehydrate them on high (60 degrees) for 1 hour and then dehydrate on 40 degrees for around 8-10 hours. This will give them a nice crispy finish.
